A null steering GPS antenna array is designed in this paper. In the proposed method, the exact full wave antenna radiation properties with the effect of mutual couplings and nearby scatterers are considered to calculate the array steering vector, precisely. Although the proposed method is not constrained by the array geometry and the antenna element specifications, a five patch antenna elements with planar array geometry is designed and simulated as an anti jam GPS antenna example. The simulation results show the importance of the mutual coupling effects. Moreover, the results verify the proposed method ability to encounter with the multiple GPS jammer sources. Finally, the effect of jammer power is investigated which shown that the antenna performance is increased by jammer power enhancement.
